The MB995 is an ATX motherboard based on the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor family. With optimized processor and graphics performance, the board supports the C246 (MB995VF-C246) and the Q370 (MB995VF) chipsets.

 MB995 ATX motherboard

The motherboard boasts of improved I/O capability and various expansion slots. Aside from 1x PCIe(x16), 1x PCIe(x4), 1x PCIe(x1), and 3x PCI slots, it comes with an M.2 (2280) to support NVMe drives with write speeds up to 3500MB/s – 7 times over SATA SSDs, and M.2 (2230) with CNVi architecture designed for WiFi and Bluetooth devices. Onboard memory and network connectivity support include four DDR4 sockets to accommodate up to 64GB system memory and dual Intel Gigabit Ethernet.

MB995 is designed for high-end applications in industrial automation, kiosk, digital signage, medical imaging and gaming markets. Available advanced features are iAMT (11.6) for remote management and repair of systems, TPM (2.0) for improved systems integrity, vPro and IBASE’s owned iSMART technology that enables energy-efficient systems.
